Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.6/100, a mean average of 78.2/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 79.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Maravillosa sorpresa con un Springsteen acústico (antes de la fiebre de los unplugged) e intimista. Magnífico.

It must have taken an act of God for Columbia Records to release a cassette home demo as a studio album. In an era of overproduction, this preceded nearly all mass-marketed albums with indie, lo-fi or sparce production. Today, most Americana artists try to produce studio albums modeled after the magic of these home demos. This record is dark but delicate. Every song is a miniature movie, with characters and a story about their struggles. A true landmark.

Essential.

Springsteen channels Dylan for his most bleak and emotionally raw release. I also find it to be head and shoulders above the rest of his albums.

Amazing how Bruce decided to followup his biggest hit album by a complete stylistic 180. Works pretty good for this album.

Bruce dipping his toe in folk. A quiet, dark effort with a very consistent tone. Its definitely caters towards a certain mood, but an excellent album from the Boss. Worthy of the high praise for sure.

Apparently Springsteen inspired by the classic debut album by Suicide for this dark acoustic classic
